We place an emphasis on quality of service. As a condition of our registration with Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (“PCAOB”), registration with Canadian Public Accountability Board (“CPAB”) and membership in the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (“AICPA”), we participate in a rigorous quality control program, which includes peer reviews of our auditing practice. This ensures our compliance with the highest of professional standards and our commitment to maintaining the highest continuing professional education standards. We meet or exceed all of the professional education standards required by federal and state agencies.
What makes us unique are the personal attention, commitment and energy we bring to each client relationship. Each client is assigned a team that includes a shareholder that is actively engaged to ensure that the client’s planning and execution are designed specifically to meet their accounting and financial needs and goals. Our shareholders have experience in both public accounting and private industry. This enables us to closely identify with the financial executives we serve.
One of our shareholders, Jeff Houston, is a member of the Texas Society of CPAs’ Professional Standards Committee. The primary objective of the committee is to respond to exposure drafts of the FASB, SEC, AICPA, GASB, PCAOB and any other accounting and auditing standard-setting body that has an impact on the practice of accountancy in Texas. The Professional Standards Committee is responsible for all phases of the response process including identifying exposure drafts that warrant a response, assigning responsibility for reviewing exposure drafts, developing draft responses and approving the final letters to standard-setting bodies.
Our firm utilizes technology systems and tools that are robust, enabling, and easy to use. These tools help:
- Support consistent implementation of the audit methodology;
- Drive enhanced audit quality;
- Enable efficient completion of audits; and
- Implement important risk management controls designed to protect auditor independence and avoid conflicts.
Technology is used to leverage knowledge, provide electronic workspace, and to assist and support our professionals using our audit methodology. The Accounting Research Manager tool provides our professionals with quick access to authoritative literature they need on the job.
Significant investments in technology continue to be made as we strive to provide exceptional audit quality.
